Muslims Target Buddhists Over Koran Facebook Image
Arutz Sheva ^ | 3/10/12 | Rachel Hirschfeld

In the most recent attack in the name of Islam, Muslim protesters attacked Buddhist villages in Bangladesh, after an image portraying a burnt Koran was posted on Facebook.

Witnesses said angry crowds set fire to homes and temples in the Cox's Bazar district, forcing families to flee the area, BBC news reported.

Hundreds of protesters reportedly rampaged Buddhist neighborhoods on Saturday and into the early hours of Sunday morning, smashing statues, burning down monasteries and attacking houses.

The man accused of posting the image is in protective custody. Police say he was tagged in the photo but did not post it himself, according to the BBC.

"Before they set fire to my home, they looted everything," resident Sumoto Barua said, according to the news agency. "They took our possessions, money, gold and even computers. Then they torched the house. I am now living under open sky."

Bangladeshi Home Minister Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir described the violence as "premeditated and deliberate acts of communal violence against a minority".

A curfew has been imposed and security forces are patrolling the streets.

It's a Religion of PeaceTM.

And some of them will kill you to prove it.

Not all, or even most, of course. But some will.

Liberals love Buddhists because they like the meditative music, exotic chanting, and being able to claim to be religious without the rules and standards of a church.

Liberals love Islam because they want to destroy the west and stick it to whitey.

So which side are they going to pick here?

What if people just flooded the internet with pictures like that? What are they going to do, burn down the world? They are in a constant state of rage anyway just sitting around waiting to get offended about something. Screw them, give them something to really be mad about, lol.

How secure can you be in your religious beliefs if you want to kill people for every little challenge to it?

Both religions believe in fatalism. Muslims believe in a highly physical afterlife, for which you gain admittance by killing lots of infidels. Buddhists believe in a reality grounded in the Great Wheel, with many return trips to this earthly plane, all reflective of the karma expended in how you’ve lived your last life. So that means you are trapped by the consequences of your actions. They’ll go with the Muslims. I bet one New Israeli Shekel. Any takers?

Most might not attack you themselves, but they will stand silently by while others do. We had Muslims standing out by a busy street last weekend proclaiming that they love peace. When you read between the lines of the article, though, you discovered that they don’t condone violence, they want people to understand that there are “responsible” for what they say and do that insults religion. Sounds like a threat to me.

All discussed at length on this thread:
Why are Moslems so easily offended
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2938748/posts

Facts: Arab males’ mothers fondle their weeners when they are infants.
Arab male toddlers are made to wear girl clothes to avert the evil eye.
Pedaresty is rampant in Arab society.

All this makes Arabs very volatile when they grow up. But are these practices common in other Muslim societies as well? Do Bangadeshis and Pakistani male children also suffer this constant messing with their masculine identity?

“What are they going to do, burn down the world?”

SHHHHHH... Don’t give them any ideas.
And I agree with you. If we flooded the internet with photos, it would finally spark a war with these people and we could finally blow them back to the stone age. Wait...
Too late!!

You know, for the most part, Muslims can't get along with anybody.

Except Muslim sympathizers, a very shady bunch, at most.

The sympathizers occasionally go into Ghaza and get killed, so I guess they don’t get along well with them, either.
